You heard it here first.

My prediction for who will win the presidential election is as follows:

Starting 4 weeks before the election, major terrorist activity will begin, with the intention of affecting the election, as it did in spain.

If the terrorist are stopped, Bush will win, on the theory that "he has protected us".

If they are not stopped, or not stopped to a significant degree, Kerry will win, on the theory that "Bush caused these attacks."

It's a bad scenario, but that is my prediction, all the other issues and crap that people talk about will not matter at all.

I do not know about law school but MBA and MSN programs usually have "B" as the passing grade. In fact the graduate masters program at PENN use "B" as the minimum passing grade for all disciplines. MSN programs for nursing also require a state board exam in order to obtain a professional state license to practice and write prescriptions, etc.

Rick said med school was similar as you described for law students. His MBA program was "B" minimum to pass. Only one shot at retaking a "C" grade course before you were shown the door.

I asked Wendi since she is a Nurse Practitioner. It takes six full-time years to become an NP. Her MSN university program in Georgia also had a "B" as the minimum passing grade. We both needed to pass the state licensure exams to practice.

Maybe they needed to give you lawyers extra grade fluctuation room to avoid litigation. LOL!

May 3 2004 us news and world report. Jack Kelley editor for the USA Today resigned after being proven to have fabricated many stories He has done this for years.

Same article. This comes a year after similar incident with the New York Times where it was Jayson Blair.

Only point proven hear is sometimes not even the most reliable of sources are all that reliable.

Exactly! ""Wondering Why"" is not a "fact" as Wendi had suggested in her post below. I do believe that she meant provable records and not just the "Case was dropped becasue of daddy" type reply. I think she is pretty clear on the difference between Fact and Opinion. Not a hard concept to understand for most excpet those that still post junk like "Bush *was* AWOL", ect., when there are just no such documented, legal record facts to back it up.

Martha S. has been convicted. That is a fact, not an opinion like "I Think Martha is innocent". Innocent is an "opinion" and Guilty as charged is "Fact".

As with any graduate school a "B" is the lowest passing grade. A "C" is a failure! Therefore Bush must have had a "B" grade or better GPA to graduate from Harvard Business School. Since "daddy", at the time of his Harvard MBA was not the President or even Vice-President ... I tend to beleive the article she posted from a felow MBA and Harvard Professor over the "other facts" that I have witnessed on this board.

Just another side note here. My Rick (PENN Legacy) has stated many times that getting his MBA from PENN's Wharton School was harder than earning his MD degree from PENN. I always thought that was very interesting.

I know Bush was a leagacy at Yale ... when did Bush, Sr. or Prescott attend Harvard?

Typical Bush attack machine. When you can't defend Bush you attack elsewhere. Fact: The SEC did investigate Dubya for insider trading. Fact: This was while Daddy Bush was president. Fact: Bush sat on the board of Harken. Fact: Bush sold his stocks of Harken. Fact: Shortly afterwards Harken announced a $25million loss. Opinion: Form your own. Fact: Bush went to war against Iraq without UN approval. Fact: Bush is seeking help from the UN for nation building of Iraq. Fact: Bush campaigned that he did not agree with nation building. Opinion: When the June 30th deadline comes and Iraq is not stabilized Bush will blame the UN. I’ll bet a bazillion dollars on that one. But that’s just my opinion. Time will tell.

Fact: The government does NOT want you to see flag covered caskets. I’d still love to hear a Bush proponent defend that one.

Of course it’s rhetoric when Bush is accused of something, and fact when the Bush attack machine goes on the prowl. Not charged doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. And how convenient it was that while Dubya was being investigated for insider trading by the SEC, Daddy Bush was president of the USA. The fact is, shortly after Bush (who sat on the board) sold his stock, Harken announced a $25million loss. It is what it is.

If the UN is laughable, why is Bush going to them? What does that make him? Humiliating? Flip Flop? The fact is, Bush needed their help after saying FU to them. If he was so great, he’d use the plan he had and do it on his own. Oh yea… he didn’t have a plan of his own. Plus, now he can use the UN as a scapegoat when things don’t look so well on June 30th. Wait for that one!

How are the news media bashing Kerry? Arguing over medals, SUV’s, and his wife’s ketchup money? The real issues huh. What about what really matters, like why the government wants to censor pictures of unidentified flagged draped coffins? Are we petty citizens to stupid to see them? I’d love to hear a Bush proponent defend that one.

So our president is playing poker with our country? A game of bluffing? Changing your game play? Yea that sounds about right. He went all in on WMD’s with a pair of duces. That bluff didn’t work. Went all in again on a pair of threes saying that he would stabilize Iraq by June 30. Another bluff that didn’t work. You’re not a good poker player when you have to go back to the dealer, oops I mean UN for help when you loose. The problem with gambling…. The gambler always looses in the end. Just ask any of the billionaire casino owners.

" ... The comparatively small amount of attention paid by the political press to the President’s Harvard MBA partially reflects a generalized ignorance of, and hostility toward, the degree itself. More importantly, acknowledging that he learned any valuable intellectual perspectives would contradict the storyline that young W was a party animal, who coasted through his elite education, scarcely cracking a book. In other words ... he is too “stupid” to have picked up any tricks across the Charles River from Harvard Square.

This is patently incorrect. Having attended Harvard Business School at the same time as the President, graduating from the two-year program a year after he did, and then serving on its faculty after a year’s interval spent writing a PhD thesis, I am intimately familiar with the rigors of the program at the time, and the miniscule degree of slack cut for even the most well-connected students, when their performance did not make the grade.

There is simply no way on earth that the son of the then-Ambassador to China, or anyone else, could have coasted through Harvard Business School with a “gentleman’s C.” I never, ever heard of a case of an incompetent student being allowed to graduate, simply because a certain family was prominent. On the contrary, I did hear stories of well-born students having to leave prior to graduation. The academic standards were a point of considerable pride ..."

" ... One final note on George W. Bush’s management style and his Harvard Business School background does not derive from the classroom, per se. One feature of life there is that a subculture of poker players exists. Poker is a natural fit with the inclinations, talents, and skills of many future entrepreneurs. A close reading of the odds, combined with the ability to out-psych the opposition, leads to capital accumulation in many fields, aside from the poker table.

By reputation, the President was a very avid and skillful poker player when he was an MBA student. One of the secrets of a successful poker player is to encourage your opponent to bet a lot of chips on a losing hand. This is a pattern of behavior one sees repeatedly in George W. Bush’s political career. He is not one to loudly proclaim his strengths at the beginning of a campaign. Instead, he bides his time, does not respond forcefully, a least at first, to critiques from his enemies, no matter how loud and annoying they get. If anything, this apparent passivity only goads them into making their case more emphatically..."

Before we blindly ASSuME that Bush was a great business leader, lets look at the true facts. His first company Arbusto (Spanish for Bush) was bought with $17,500 from his education trust fund and $3 million in funds from family friends and backers of Bush Sr's political aspirations. When Arbusto was going bankrupt Philip Uzielli (while chief of staff in the Reagan White House) for the sum of $1 million, bought 10 percent of the company at a time in 1982 when the entire enterprise was valued at less than $400,000. The company was renamed Bush Exploration. Two years later that company was facing bankruptcy again and merged with Spectrum 7 Energy Corp. Two years later that company too was facing bankruptcy. When it was acquired by Harken Energy Corp. Bush received $600,000 worth of stock, a $120K salary, and a seat on the board. Harken directors "believed having George's name there would be a big help to them." Substantial income and minimal corporate duties were the end of his failing oil career. What a deal for having the Bush name. With impeccable timing (while Bush Sr. was becoming the new president) Dubya was offered a piece of the Texas Rangers. Bush's stake in the team, just under 2 percent, was among the smallest. He purchased his shares with a $500,000 loan from a Midland bank of which he had been a director. Again, anything to do with the Bush name? Two months after SR’s inauguration, Dubya announced that the sale had been completed. Even though Bush was the smallest investor, he (his name) was used as the figurehead owner. While “owner” of the Rangers, a new stadium was built, with taxpayer money. Here’s where it gets interesting. Cost of Stadium $190million. Taxpayer share $135million. Owners share came from a ticket price increase. The city in return received $5million a year rent, to a maximum of $60million (1/2 of the $135million investment). In which the owners later sold for $250million. What a nice ROI. How much was given back to the taxpayers? $0.00 Who’s stupid Bush or the taxpayers? And don’t forget the trade of Sammy Sosa, that was a good business deal too! While Bush is off playing baseball Harken Energy is having financial problems. Bush sold off his Harken stock, two weeks before Harken announced a $23.2 million loss in quarterly earning. Insider trading? Bush is an amoral opportunist, not a good businessman.
